Cornwall faces huge road improvements in upcoming years


A huge investment was made in recent years to provide improvements to the roads of Cornwall.

Cornwall officials who were working with their partners along with the Government and the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise helped to come up with a budget of £589 million in transport plans since 2014.

These plans include the projects in Redruth, Carkeel, and Bodmin as well as the dualling of the road at A30.

To bring improvements to the A38, the council formulated three Road Investment Strategy (RIS) programs.

In Cornwall, speed limits and variable standards caused issues in the stretch of A38 between the Tamar Bridge and Bodwin.

The roads also have a poor accident history which shows three times the frequency of accidents compared to any other roads on a national record. Motorists also complained about the unplanned closures of this road and stated that there have been 1,100 closures since 2014.

A major road improvement called the Atlantic Highway is also being planned by officials. This route runs for a 77km road connecting Devon into North Cornwall. This road at A39 helps to improve the route of the citizens and will surely promote 6,674 jobs and 10,400 homes under the Cornwall Local Plan until 2030.

Cornwall Council also plans to construct a £45 million road just outside Truro near Threemilestone which will provide land that could sustain up to 4,000 new homes.

The road will offer public transport as well as walking or cycling that connects the various improvements of the A390.

A £12 million budget is also proposed to upgrade Loggans Moor junction located at Hayle. This project aims to promote the safety, connectivity, and reliability of the A30 road in Cornwall.

Building this project allows the possibility of providing 1,200 new homes for the people.

A number of road improvement projects are on the way for the betterment of Cornwall and its citizens. With the right planning, strategy, and allocation of the budget, these improvements will surely make Cornwall progress more, better than before.
